Did you hear the Diane Rehm Show on our local NPR station this Wednesday Morning? The topic of the 11:00 show was, "The Role of Libraries in Economic Hard Times". Here is a link that you can use to listen to the show.
Rehm discusses the fact that libraries offer more than just books. There are also DVDs, CDs, Internet Access, Games, and more educational and entertainment resources available to borrow or take advantage of. Your local library has a special role in the community during tough economic times!
Here is another news story, "Rediscovering the Library During Down Economic Times", that aired on NECN News recently.
There have been many similar stories in the news lately from all over the country. Please tell us about any articles, news spots, etc... that you have seen!
